Open Sources (Ep. #369) Show Notes for March 17, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, contrarian opinions are welcome, and they always will be. Wish we could say that was true in Russia, which is doing everything it can to convince its people that they are not in an aggressive war against Ukraine. We have to talk about that again, and we will also talk about the race to be Canada’s next Federal Conservative leader, plus, a city councillor stops by for another chat.

Open Sources (Ep. #345) Show Notes for September 30, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we thought we were done with Federal politics for at least a week, but the news doesn’t care about our own bright ideas. In the last week, we’ve seen the sudden and surprising end to the saga of the Two Michaels, and the sudden and not-so-surprising end of Annamie Paul’s Green Party leadership. In the back half of the show, we go back to 1 Carden Street to talk about Guelph stuff! Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #345) Show Notes for September 30, 2021”

Open Sources Show Notes for October 22, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to get into a realm of law and politics you’ve long demanded we visit: fishing rights! We will head out to the east coast for that big story on Indigenous rights, and then we will look at the recently renewed fracas over the WE scandal. Then, in the second half of the show, we will talk to an old friend and former colleague about the COVID-age at Guelph City Council. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for October 22, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for December 5, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re getting back to basics. Scotty Hertz will be back at the controls as we catch up with old friends in Ottawa, and old friends in Washington D.C., and the surprising way both those friends crossed paths this week. After that, we’ll talk to another old friend from Guelph City Council and ask about the recently wrapped up budget process at City Hall. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for December 5, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday February 7, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, the state of the union is deeply cynical with a hint of despair. We’ll talk about Trump’s latest attempt to pivot to presidential, and we’ll talk about the Ford government’s latest pivot away from transparency. After the break, we’ll consider if a serial killer can teach us something about the present tolerance for the queer community, and if a city councillor not taking the bus can tell us something about our transit system. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday February 7, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 7, 2017

There’s some big trouble brewing on this week’s Open Sources Guelph. No, no one on this show has broken the law, but someone that was once in the Trump administration sure did! How about the Trudeau government, anyone breaking the law there? Maybe not, but that doesn’t mean the opposition isn’t kicking up some kind of fuss. And finally, no laws were broken during the passing of the city budget this week, but some feelings were probably hurt.  Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 7, 2017”
